When buying an exercise bike, the following things are important to keep in mind.
Saddle: A large comfortable saddle is important to be able to train longer and not get saddle pain.
Speed: our advice is to purchase a device that can handle your speeds or the RPMs. More expensive models are fitted with heavier bearings.
Sound: a decent exercise bike should not make any annoying noise during training. Older generations of exercise bikes do that and this is harmful during your training
Low step: For less mobile people who are rehabilitating, there are bicycles with low step. This simplifies the accessibility of the appliance and provides extra comfort
Resistance: The maximum resistance can be important depending on your level of training. If you can always pedal above 200 watts, you should buy a heavier type of exercise bike that can easily accommodate these values.
Training computer: A computer must display at least the following information: speed, time, distance, calorie consumption and heart rate. More extensive computers with a variety of programs provide better motivation and varied training which will lead to results faster.
Safety: for safety reasons, a good exercise bike has solid ground supports that ensure that the device stands firmly and certainly cannot tilt during use.
Weight of the exercise bike: A decent exercise bike always has a decent own weight due to the heavier construction. The braking system, on the other hand, now weighs less by the use of electronic brakes.
